New car?!?

We have been through a car nightmare the last 2 years. we HAD a WONDERFUL 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan, fully loaded. I LOVED it. Then Kyle got ill and went on disability for 8 months and we had to get rid of it because we couldn't afford the payment. :( So, we had just the Jeep Wrangler. then, my MIL gave her car to my SIL and my SIL gave her car to us. It's a 1990 Dodge Shadow. It's small but 4 door and it was FREE!! Well, that car started overheating and giving us fits and now, won't run. So, we are back to using the stupid Jeep. (Have you ever tried to fit 2 car seats in the back of a Jeep?? NOT FUN!!) My MIL called last night and said that Kyles cousin has a Bonneville that the engine blew in. He replaced the engine and now wants to sell it. She said she is going to discuss it further with him and maybe buy it for us (we would pay her back later when our $ situation is a little better). I had NO idea what a Bonneville looked like so I looked it up and I LOVE it. It's a 2000 with leather interior. So now, I kinda have my hopes up that my Jeep days are over. :) Please keep your fingers crossed for me!!

Bonnevilles are great, I had a 94 and loved it. Parents are great. We've been on the receiving end of free cars, more than I care to mention. We're kind of in a $ crunch as well. Our old house has been on the market for 3 years and we have 2 payments, Kim's not working, and hey, I'm a youth minister. Need I say more. OK, long comment. Have a great weekend.
